GRAND RAPIDS – It wasn’t meant to be for the Bemidji High School volleyball team on Thursday.

Fresh off a tough, five-set defeat to Buffalo at home on Tuesday, the Lumberjacks traveled to Grand Rapids on Thursday and were swept in three sets by the Thunderhawks.

GR (14-2) narrowly edged out BHS 25-23 in the first set but started to take control as the match went on. The Thunderhawks closed out the second set 25-16, then handled the third 25-21 to slash the Jacks’ comeback chances.

Beth Bolte led Bemidji (5-7) with 10 kills in the match, followed by Elizabeth Oster’s eight and Mollie Rupp’s seven. Margie Anderson paced the Lumberjacks with all 23 of their set assists, and Adie Potratz registered the most digs with 21.

BHS returns to the court against Moorhead at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 27, in Moorhead.
